Speedcubing,

the extremely jam-finger sport where you try to solve a Rubik's cube (Or more commonly a chinese aftermarket cube that moves way better than the original shitty Rubik's brand cube) as fast as possible.

Yes. Hello, fellow speedcuber. I am a speedcuber as well. Let us talk about how interesting it is that we are both speedcubers and are on a guitar related website on the Internet.

It's actually a combination of speed music and cube music.

I can solve one face and the two rows around, but I can't ever get the last face without looking it up and following the little pattern. The bit at the end is confusing enough that even while following directions I don't really understand why what I'm doing is working, it just does. If I was to ever try to get good at it and stop needing to look up how to do the last bit I would need to actually figure out how that pattern works. I tend to remember things like that better if I understand them. Just memorizing something without understanding it doesn't work so well for me.

If you're talking about the basic method then keeping your eye on the pieces that get put into place with every algorithm should help you out.

For instance, the first step on the last layer would be to make a cross. Keep your eyes on the edge pieces and you'll see how they fall into place.

I had the same problem. I didn't want to just memorize a set of movements.

I can solve the first two rows of a cube without too much difficulty. I haven't figured out how to do the last row, but I will someday. I refuse to solve it by memorizing algorithms; I want to be able to say I figured it out myself.

But I don't speed cube though. It's the journey not the destination, etc.

Speedcube sounds as though it could be the latest legal high.
